Wanted - tractor logging winch.
« on: January 19, 2006, 11:07:10 PM »
Hey folks, if you could keep your eyes open for me for a used tractor logging winch, I would appreciate it.  I can not justify the cost of a new one for the 1-2 months a year I log here on the property.  I just need a smaller one, category 1 hitch, pto driven....I don't have rear hydraulics.  Perhaps a 7000-8000 pull.

I would also entertain a good used PTO winch as a base to build my own.

Thanks!!

Captain, what I did was build a 3 point system for a winch off of a duce and a half.  I then attatched an a frame that had a grapple attatched off of a 12 inch boom.  I will try and get some pictures to show you.

what HP and weight tractor do you have? Make sure you get one rated for that size tractor and EXTRA WEIGHT in front is a good idea. I used to sell Fransgard. The biggest problem is not winching the load in, it is then lifting the winch and the log or logs and driving safely.
logging small time for years but just learning how,  2012 36 HP Mahindra tractor, 3point log arch, 8000# class excavator, lifts 2500# and sets logs on mill precisely where needed,  Peterson ATS upgraded to WPF mill, maple syrup a hobby that consumes my time. looking to learn blacksmithing.

Thanks Dave, I've got a 27HP New Holland.  I'm looking in the 6600-8000lb pull catagory.  Just can't justify a new one for the use it will get.  Let me know if any of your old customers contact you!!

Thanks!

Hey captian, the one in Muskegon didn't work out for you?
Mobile Demension sawmill, Bobcat 873 loader, 3 dry kilns and a long "to do" list.

No Oakie, it did not  :(

I was ready to buy it...he sent me some pictures via snail mail.  In that time it sold.

Thanks for the effort!!
